Recent Manasota Key reviews
"My family and I have been spending time on Manasota Key for many years and have rented many different VRBO properties. This house was by far the loveliest we have rented. It is laid out very well and has fantastic views of the beach & ocean, even though it is not directly on the beach. Just a few feet away from the beach access though. There are alot of steps but after a few days they were not an issue...hopefully we all built some leg muscle!! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach vacation with all of the amenities. Toys, chairs, umbrella, outdoor shower all add to the value of this home! Thanks for sharing your home!"

"We decided to make a trip to Florida at the very last minute over 4th of July weekend. Since July is not peak season, I had my pick of many rentals. We had never rented a house before, so I was a little nervous about how everything would go. I called the number listed at about 9:00 at night thinking I would leave a message, but the owner answered. We chatted for about 20 minutes and I knew this was the place for us. Darlene went above and beyond to make sure our family (2 adults and 2 kids) would be comfortable and have everything we could possibly need. We rented the upstairs house (Capt. Quarters) and it was beautiful. We had a nice view of the Gulf from our porch, and the beach was only 100 or so steps away. Perfect for letting the boys walk back to the house by themselves to grab some of the many beach toys Darlene provided. Darlene made the boys feel so special, and made us all feel like family. The area never felt crowded, the beach was beautiful, and there was lots to do in the area. My boys came home with 15+ baggies full of shark teeth and other prehistoric finds from the beach. We all agreed this was our favorite vacation so far, and can not wait to visit again and see Darlene. The only bad part was leaving :("

"This is the second time we have been to "Almost Heaven", and it is! Beautiful view, could just stay there forever! My sister and I took a little summer vacation, and were so excited as at that time the turtles were hatching from thier nests. Marge is wonderful to work with, and the cleaning staff very helpful and the place is spotless. Can't wait to go back to paradise!"

"We have been home a little over a week and can't wait to return to the Paradise Beach Home. It is paradise! We have stayed at various condos up and down Manasota Key, but staying in a house was a wonderful change. We arrived at the home in the early evening and were greeted with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and some lovely snacks. After traveling all day, it was a nice surprise. It was great to find a well equipped kitchen with spices (I love to cook) pots and pans, dishes, etc. The wrap around lanai is where we spent a great deal of our time. It was wonderful to sit and have coffee in the morning and dinner at night. We didn't spend much time on the deck as the sun was blazing and there is no shade, but in the cooler months, this would be the place to be! The view is amazing. We saw dolphins almost every day and saw manatees twice, I only wished we could have seen some of the turtles hatch. Maybe next time! Overall, it was the most peaceful and comfortable piece of Old Florida that anyone could ask for."
